Favorite Students

I wonder why

your favorite students

are cheaters.


I can always see them

looking up the answers on their phones,

glancing at notes on their laps or under their papers,

peering at their neighbors' unshielded scantrons,

trading questions and answers between classes,

staring at their hands graffitied with the review,


stealing your answer keys.


How can people like this

be the

teacher of the year's

favorite students?
